I'm ALWAYS curious as to what others would consider cheating.....

If you form a special bond with one or two or several people over the internet and decide to take it one step further by engaging in emotional... sexual stimulation as per way by conversation, is that cheating?

Its a debate that rages on and on from my blog to yours, from website to website..and I'm always amazed at the replies and answers people tend to dish them... hell yea.. its always nice to see what frame of mind people are in and if I'm in that same mind set..

So my question to you... is carrying on over the internet by way of cyber stimulation a form of cheating?

I can't say I have been involved in a relationship and talked to someone else over the computer so I don't know how I would react if I were to be in that situation or how I might react if I found a partner talking to someone else on the computer. I'm not the jealous type and I don't mind someone flirting but I suppose if there was an emotional attachment I might see it differently. Hard to say really. Next time ask an easier question

Are you referring to cyber sex? I guess it depends on whether you feel guilty about it or it upsets your real life SO.

Why, have you been cheating on me again?!?

The only thing I know for sure is that when the relationship advances to the phone, my computer gets as jealous as hell!!!

I think it is an individual thing. For me no, only if they become emotionally attached to a curtain person. Even if it would advance to the point that they meet and had sex I do not think I would be too upset. First of all I do not own my partners. It is her body as long as she took steps to prevent from contracting STD. I am OK with it. Now my last partner did not see it that way and I respected here point of view. I felt controlled and a bit caged. I sustained as long as I could and excused myself from the relationship when I could not. It depends on how they where indoctrinated and experiences growing up. What is acceptable and what is not. We all are different and have differing point of views that part of life. I am a person who does not like others trying to dictate to me how I should think or believe.

It's too hard to tell what's real and what's not on sites like this ... so my answer is no. If you've actually met someone and are dating or something ... let's say someone that you've met from here and one or the other person is still flirting and having sexual conversations with other people ... I can see how that could be considered cheating.

Just my opinion.

Guess it depends on what you see as cheating. I figure as long as its an act of love its not cheating. Who said we were only allowed to have one lover in life anyways married or not. If i masturbate watching a porno to some chick while the wife is at work am I cheating? Thats more of a cheating event to me being that its done for lust instead of love..

Alas, it is. If you are doing it with someone else, chances are you aren't doing it with the one you should be doing it with. That's an overgeneralization but I've seen enough of infidelity to attempt to universalize my impressions (prejudices?) and foist them upon you.

Depends on the people involved. Like me, for example, would not have any problem with a girlfriend cybering with another man. It's not cheating if they're just chatting. Although, I would have a problem with her camming for the guy. Showing, that is, not so much seeing. Because it's no different than her reading erotic literature... Or looking at porn, which is a hobby of mine...

The view point my husband and I have is, as long as you don't lie about it or sneak behind the other ones back, then it is alright. It is the honesty and trust that has to be broken to be considered cheating. Honey and Runt

I think many people would consider cyber sex as "cheating". Of course, the boundaries are always drawn by each relationship.

I don't think it can be said that cyber is or is not cheating, definitively. It depends on the people in the relationship involved.

I was going to say that it's only cheating if your significant other thinks it is, but I like JVT's answer -- if you don't feel you could tell your partner about it, then, yes, it's cheating.

OTOH, if you're asking if each of us personally would consider it cheating -- no, I wouldn't. I'd be perfectly ok with my SO (if I had one) cybering. As long as he showed me the transcripts and/or told me about it... not because I'd need to know what he was up to, but because it would likely turn me on!

Cheating, like most things, is in the eye of the beholder. If a couple have a mutual agreement, or if all involved know about it, then no problem. If they are keeping something secret, that says too much about the relationship. True, we all have certain secrets, but one of this type is clearly not the best.

btw, glad to see you back.

I can see why some people could consider cybering cheating, especially if one partner is keeping it secret from the other...

My lady & I are open about everything we do, so I don't feel as if I'm cheating or if she is cheating...maybe we're just f*ckin' weird...

Since you asked; Personally, I think if it involves any orgasm achieved with another person, whether live or over the phone/net, is cheating. If your partner doesn't know or approve, of course. Male or female, sex is sex... Black is white, cauliflower is good.. sorry, off subect.

Yes. Cybersex is still cheating.

This person said it all...I feel the same way...I would also add in, that I do not think watching a cam is cheating either....mind you I said watching not performing...Nothing wrong with some stimulation here and there whether it be from here or a mag.

If it's secret, it's cheating. Otherwise I think it's just a form of release. Kind of interactive porn. Is watching porn cheating?

I would think that "cheating" would depend on what the agreement is to begin with. I will have to admit that I'm cheating on someone I know only through the internet because she asked me not to have certain kinds of relationships with other women over the internet, and I agreed and have then done so anyway. (Although not when she was available...)

I agree with mollen6
If you never physically meet someone the only way you could be "cheating" is in your head.
To me that is not cheating.
That said it might be wise to involve partners in a site like this so the conversations are not hidden.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

I'm of the belief that cheating isn't related to the act itself. It's simply the lie that goes with it. I know couples who are in relationships that are "open" and, as long as each of them are fully open with each other and honest about how they feel about an "encounter" before that encounter happens then they're both cool with it.

I can't say I'd be as secure in my relationship but I think that, ultimately, it's the dishonesty that is cheating and all the follow on coverups that go with that initial lie because, at the end of the day, the foundation of every relationship is trust.

I thought I had the first paragraph of Dessert's comment going, then after about five years "open" turned into "cheating" (she had been the adventurous one) when she let the extra interest affect our relationship.

That's my threshold, if it affects our relationship then we need to reexamine what's going on. Hiding it from each other is a sign of lack of trust, which is a bad thing. She had been hiding from me for many months, possibly years.

Next time around, I'll probably have a different attitude. Still in the middle of this breakup, it's not going to be clean. House, daughter...


5/1/2006 8:40 am

I've never considered sex among consenting adults cheating . Two people that commit to sharing a life with eachother is a commitment you make to live life together . Sex is not what makes a relationship between two people . It is human nature to want to have sex with people we are attracted to , so in this time in life , why shouldn't people be able to enjoy a good romp with someone they are attracted to.

... and to think that in the 'swing lifestyle' people complain of couples who send 'endless emails' instead of just getting in the car and meeting to have a romp!! It just depends on which end of the telescope you are looking through!

Like others have already said, it depends on what the understanding is between you and your partner. If an act, any act, deceives them and would hurt them, it's cheating.

My husband knows that IM on and knows that I chat with both men and women. Most of the conversations that I have take place in front of him as most of the chat is not related to sex. Is that's really in the eye of the beholder.

I figure if my ex can say that a blowjob isn't sex, then typing on a keyboard is even less innocent than that. The only thing that might make it a little suspect is the emotional attachment part. Is it cheating if I pleasure myself to a porno? Nope. If that was true, I've cheated on every woman I've ever dated (shame on me...). If reading something on your computer screen gets you off, there's only a slight difference between that and reading a romance novel that gets you hot and bothered - you have some knowledge of who wrote the words that are getting you excited.

My GF says cyber is only a conversation & not cheating. Good question though. I think it depends on each couples morals. I think if you have to do it behind your partners back then it is. But then that's just me.

Some say cheating begins in the mind and goes to the body next. But everyone's definition of cheating isn't the same. So I would say when you're in a committed relationship and you both have said I want you as my steady, then when you start seeing someone else mentally and physically I think that might be called cheating. Anyway that's my view.

If it's something you're keeping secret it's cheating. My husband knows exactly what I'm up to....after all he created the profile on here. And he loves reading what I chat about.

The whole concept of cheating is being sneaky and being secret about it. Lying by omission is still lying. Now, if the mate knows about it and there isn't any secret meetings etc then no it wouldn't be. As long as they are both on the same page as to their relationship.

It's like a person being stopped by the police and running. They are guilty or they wouldn't have run. Simple i guess.

To me no matter if it's with the mind or body, any (what your partner considers) lustful actions amongst your partner is considered cheating by me. It doesn't matter if you feel guilty or not, it's not you that determines this but your significant other.

I am married. We are on this site as a couple but he won't give me our password. I strongly suspect he is also listed as a single and is seeing people while I am working 40 hours a week. I enjoy our playtime with others, but when he plays as a single without me, behind my back, I consider that cheating. NEED YOUR ADVISE.

Apply online the rules that you would have in non-cyber life. In relationships we don't own each other, but there are rules that apply the moment your friendship becomes explicitly sexual. However, it is important that the terms of the relationship are understood and agreed by both partners. To break such an agreement would be cheating.

Yes, it is cheating. Anything out of the relationship in wich you are involved right now, is cheating. Even if you hate the person you are with, you would still be cheating. wheather or not that bothers you is the real wuestion for everyone. Being single, I dont have to worry about that.
